(Minghui.org) Twenty years ago on October 12, Master Li Hongzhi taught Falun Gong lectures in Houston for the first time. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Falun Gong's introduction to Houston, practitioners held an experience-sharing conference and a group exercise in Hermann Park on October 9, 2016.

Falun Gong practitioners meditate in Hermann Park, Houston.

Falun Gong practitioners displayed banners reading “Falun Dafa,” “Truthfulness Compassion Forbearance,” and “Greetings to Master” on the morning of October 9th. The tranquil meditation and bright yellow t-shirts formed a striking scene in Hermann Park.

A participant, Ms. Zhang, said taking up Falun Dafa cultivation was the best choice she's ever made. The book Zhuan Falun changed her view of life, and answered questions she had for years. She began to follow Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance in her everyday life, and truly cultivate herself through looking inward during conflicts instead of blaming others, she said.
